Abuja - The real reasons why President Goodluck Jonathan and the national leadership of the ruling Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) are angry with the Chairman of the Independent National Electoral Commission, Prof. Attahiru Jega have been revealed, reports Punch.

The reasons bother on the use of the Permanent Voter Cards and card readers for the general elections.

Jonathan and the leadership of the PDP are not happy with Jega for insisting to go ahead with the use of the PVCs and card readers despite pleas by the party to drop the idea for now.

Jonathan is particularly worried over the distribution of PVCs in areas he considers as his stronghold in the South.

Jonathan and the PDP have equally expressed concerns over the use of card readers.

They noted that there was no way the machine would be effective in the area of accreditation of voters.
